The Verge: Apple’s New iPad Likely Has 1GB of RAM

Yesterday, Apple announced several new iPad features such as the high-resolution Retina display, dual-core A5X chip with a quad-core graphics processor, 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, compatibility with 4G LTE cellular networks, and Siri voice dictation for speech-to-text. But, one thing it neglected to touch upon was the amount of RAM, or memory, that the new tablet contains…

Sources for The Verge seem to have that aspect covered, however, suggesting that the new iPad likely contains 1GB of RAM. For comparison purposes, the original iPad contained just 256MB of RAM, while the iPad 2 had 512MB of memory. We’ll know for sure when the iPad launches on March 16th, as iFixit — as they have done in the past — is usually quick to get their hands on one and tear it apart to reveal the exact specifications of the tablet.
